Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) authorities claimed that on July 10 and 12 they caught two candidates who had used unfair means to get admission in B.Tech course for the academic session 2012-13 in the Faculty of Engineer and Technology at JMI.
Following the interrogation, one boy confessed that an impersonator was arranged by a consultancy namely, Admission Providers, Sabzi Bagh, Patna (Bihar), according to the university media coordinator.
Also, he informed the vigilant authorities that the deal was settled for rupees five lakh, said the university release.
“Ahmad Saami, son of Mohammad Amjad Maroof, resident of Patna (Bihar) was caught on July 12. On questioning Saami accepted that some other candidate impersonated for him. Further, the candidate stated that he did not know the name of the person who impersonated for him,” claimed university release.
It further added: “Two candidates were caught during their admission process of B.Tech for fixing impersonation during verification. Osama Hasan son of Shamsul Hasan, who was caught on July 10, belongs to Kanpur, (U.P.). A resident of Kanpur impersonated for him to assist his admission in B.Tech.”
Of late some cases have been cracked by the JMI authorities who have become vigilant during admission and entrance time. Also, the whole admission process has been improved to such an extent that it has become difficult for impersonators to get through.
